Use of mobile elevated platforms in Theatres
The installation of load bearing structures by theatres' to carry a mobile elevated platform is a massive step forward which allows the full inspection of the plaster ceilings from below, which could not be comprehensively done before without full scaffolds.
This allows me working for plastering companies to set out the repairs that necessary to the plain and ornamental plasterwork ceilings and balcony fronts in line with ABTT guidance note 20. This surveys identify areas of risk and required repairs that are needed to the ceilings.
The reports often, working with a structural engineer, include repairs to the immediate structure supports of the ceilings that may be lath and plaster, cast ornamental details and/or panels of fibrous plaster. As well as detailed repair schedules for the lime and gypsum based plaster work.
The schedules always relate back to drawing and diagrams identifying the issues and location of repairs.

On our last day in Barbados, it was good to see the vertical sliding sashes, made from Guyana Purple Heart wood, going back into frames within the Garrison House at Bridgetown. Tutors and students from the Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology, with a little support from Mark, copied adjacent windows to begin conservation work on this building.

Mark was very pleased to help Grantley Adams Memorial School, and a voluntary group set up to bring a former slave hospital back into use, with an evening event to demonstrate the building’s potential to create a better future for all Bajans.
